Co-ed junior boarding and day school for students in grades pre-kindergarten through nine
In addition to several drama productions each year, students at IMS can choose from electives such as improvisational comedy and set design.

All fifth and sixth graders participate in a theater production, and we encourage students in older grades to participate on or behind the stage as well. Recent productions include Annie Get Your Gun, Oliver, The Wizard of Oz, 12 Angry Men, Snow White, and Little Women.

Our students’ enthusiasm for acting and all aspects of theater production is tremendous. We work hard to involve anyone who is interested in any aspect of drama. At times, we write in extra cameo roles or create extra jobs on the backstage crew so we can include as many interested students as possible.

“IMS gave me the tools I needed to grow in acting, even at a young age. Now I am studying acting full time, thanks to the incredible beginning I received.”
